Bruins sweep Warriors in county doubleheader

(Continued)

LIZTON —

“His seven points in that fourth quarter were as big of any seven points in the entire game,” Bontreger said.

Lynn had missed all seven of his shots until connecting on his first 3-pointer.

“He is a fearless kid,” he said. “He’s one of the guys on our team that I know is going to be a competitor and he does not want to lose.”

The Warriors held the lead throughout most of the game but it slipped just out of reach at end.

“They made some plays down the stretch, those two threes they hit there late were obviously big momentum changers,” Danville coach Brian Barber said. “It was just kind of a grind game for both teams.”

With five minutes remaining in the game, Warriors center Jackson Stone took a charge on the defensive end and then on the other side of the court scored in the paint to give Danville a 37-33 lead.

Bontreger took a timeout and the Bruins finished on a 15-3 run to close the game out. The Warriors had the momentum late but lost it.

“We didn’t fully capitalize on that like we should have,” Barber said. “When you get momentum like that, whether it’s defensive plays or offensive plays, you want to make two or three plays in a row… instead of it being a two or three point game, it’s a five, six, seven-point game. Those are crucial things. In a game like this, you’re not going to get very many of those opportunities.”

Trevor Waite scored 15 for the Bruins. Avery Motes contributed 12 points for the Warriors

With the postseason close to a month away, Tri-West is playing their best of the season.

“We are starting to play some pretty good basketball,” Bontreger said. “We are really excited with how our team is starting to gel together.”
